Mr Krabs is another of the Spongebob figures available. We came across them all when we were looking for little stocking fillers for my daughter (you will probably already know this if you have read my other reviews!). Mr Krabs is a lobster (or a crab whichever you prefer to call him) and he is the own of the Krusty Krab burger bar where both Spongebob and Squidward work. He is the character who lets money be his whole world. He doesn't like to spend money and spends most of his time counting it! Mr Krabs stands about 8cm high though you wouldn't think he would be as tall as Squidward but the height of his eyes make him this tall otherwise he is a short and round figure. Like the others, Mr Krabs is painted very well and is an exact replica of the character on the show. If you are a fan of the show or your child is then you will instantly recognise Mr Krabs. He is bright red with long and tall eyes which are a green colour with little eyelash type of tips on the top of them. He has a little mustache above his lip and his hands are little claws. Mr Krabs feet are little red peg shaped legs. Mr Krabs is completed by wearing the exact outfit he wears in the show. I was really impressed with his clothing as they have managed to make it look very cartoon like and it is very detailed with the top being light blue and trousers being a darker blue and a belt wrapped around his middle. His trousers also have a little bit which create a zip illusion. Mr Krabs has a confused expression on his face like someone has asked him to do something with his money! Mr Krabs is probably the most detailed of the figures as he is actually holding on to a little accessory. The accessory is none other than a little bag of money. Again, highly detailed with a dollar sign on the front and a little tie around the top so no money can come out. This accessory does not come away from Mr Krabs as it is fully attached. Mr Krabs is a nice figure and highly detailed. Like the others, he is made from a durable soft type of plastic. He stands very well as the money bag steadies him. If he was to stand with just his legs he would topple over I think. My daughter loves him and she plays with him and the other Spongebob figures alot. As with the other figures, he was purchased for £2.99 from www.play.com and came in yellow blister packaging.
I received the Bullyland set of figurines for a birthday some time back from a friend, who knew that I was into cartoons and figured my workspace could do with a bit of cheering up. So I received the set, which included Spongebob, Gary, Mr Krabs and Squidward (but not Sandy Cheeks the squirrel, which didn't make it into the set). The Mr Krabs figurine stands at about 7-8cm and features the character, well crafted and painted, looking a lot like the character in the show. The paints are done to match the colours of the character perfectly and the attention to detail is good (although the entire style of the show is pretty simplistic, it's nice to know nothing was really skimped on). Mr Krabs sports a sort of confused, shocked expression, like he often does in the show whenever some sort of business decision about his burger bar, or, more precisely, anything to do with money. His biggest vice in life is also included tucked under his left arm - the big sack of money which although does look like he took it from some nearby caricature of a burglar, adds a nice touch to the overall figurine. All in all, while small, these go well as the set, and look good placed about the work area, or lined together on your DVD shelf or something. They're small so they're not too in-your-face and a bit hard to notice if you're not near them, but I find that to be a good thing. They don't stick out too much but add a little life to a boring part of the room.
